I see fresh set of 404s in GWT today and these were all discovered on feb 28 and march 1.These are due to the issue that I had described above. we had fixed it by march 3rd, but GWT is reporting these errors for past days now.
The no. of 404s seem to be pretty huge now, though GWT is reporting only 20-25 of them.could this have a bad impact.How long will it take for G to wipe out this negative effect.
we are't still sure whether it is the panda update or these 404 errors that caused the site to see a drop in rankings for several of its pages.
